After all the advice about protecting yourself from the sun and heat of Africa, you may be forgiven for thinking that women's safari gloves are the last thing you need to pack.
However, you will be glad you remembered to bring warm, cosy gloves for the cold mornings or evenings especially when you are riding in the back of an open hunting or game-viewing truck, clinging on to the cold metalwork for dear life. Southern Africa has a particularly cold winter season from June to September.
Also if you are hunting and are used to wearing gloves for shooting, you may need to wear them most of the time when out in the bush. There is usually very little time to put them on just before your shot.
In addition, if you are walking in the African bush you may just want to protect your hands from cuts from thorns and sharp rocks etc. If the terrain is rough or steep and the vegetation is thick, you often have to grab onto branches to steady yourself and most branches in Africa carry sharp thorns.
